"NZ youth can be sure that a party vote for the Alliance is a vote for a positive future. Not only is the Alliance promoting policies that aim to rejuvenate NZ, we are also concentrating on involving youth in decision-making at every level, starting with our own party," said Sam Huggard, National Co-Spokesperson.

"The Alliance has put it's money where it's mouth is regarding youth, with the Party List and youth-friendly policies like free education and fair pay rates for young workers. It is now up to Staunch to make sure that young people are aware that the Alliance is the party for them, and campaign for the youth party vote," said Huggard.
